Sacramento billboards project May 21, 2011 as Judgment Day

SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA - Billboards bearing the date May 21, 2011, as the day the world will end have popped up all across Sacramento County.

"The billboard indicates that Christ is returning, which all Christians believe in that," said John Ralich.

The billboard reads: "Joy to the world. The Lord is coming. May 21, 2011."

"How they arrived at that date, I have no clue. If it is true that Christ is coming, it would be the end of the world," said Ralich.

The billboard also lists radio station 88.1 FM FamilyRadio.com.
News10 tried to reach ministry leader Harold Camping at Family Radio Worldwide, based in Oakland, but he was not available.
However, News10 learned Camping calculated the May 21 date based on his reading of the Bible. He also broadcasts over the airwaves every evening, talking about May 21, 2011.

Some argue May 21 is judgement day.
